Moments captured in images often have an impression of texture – physically, emotionally. So, how can we give expression to that texture in a photograph? There are many ways: choice of film, print size, depth of field, but what about beyond that? There are several alternative processes that bring their own textural qualities. In this class we will explore two such processes, lith printing and bromoil. Lith adds texture and color via it’s characteristic chemical reactions. Once mastered, this process can be exploited to give more or less texture to suit the expression. Bromoil, a process that goes back to the early 20th century pictorialist movement, marries traditional analog printing with printmaking. The textural component here varies with the tool chosen to apply the ink to the image. Join Gina White this fall as she introduces you to these amazing, versatile processes and learn to apply them in your own work.
